All that to say that I haven't forgotten my promised post. It'll be up this next week. ;)
I thought I'd share just a few pictures from yesterday's decorating. We had so much fun, and the girls were in a totally goofy mood. ;)
Oldest Gal, Little Gal, and Middle Gal hanging ornaments.
Hubby decorating the tree.
All finished...except for the topper. We put that up today. ;)
It's hard to believe this is our eighth Christmas in this house. The girls are growing up so fast. Christmas is a time that has always made me nostalgic, but I think having kids makes the holidays even more that way. It feels like just a day ago I had three little toddlers bouncing around the tree. Now I've got an almost-twelve-year-old who looks so grown up it's scary, a goofy almost-ten-year-old who keeps us laughing at her silly antics, and an imaginative almost-eight-year-old who spent the entire day dressed up as Anne of Green Gables. ;)
It's easy to get caught up in the stress and rush of this season, especially this year when I'm so behind on many of my Christmas preparations. But even in the crazy whirlwind of Christmas parties, Christmas programs, and other activities, I want to take the time to cherish these special days with my girls. All too soon, it'll be just Hubby and me decorating the tree, wishing to have these days back again.
Okay, enough of that or I'll start crying. ;) I hope you and yours are enjoying this special time of year, and that you'll remember in all the craziness to treasure your loved ones and think about the reason for the season, the birth of our Savior. :)
Talk to you later this week! :)
